CARL MCHUGH’S PERFORMANCES for Plymouth Argyle have been dubbed as ‘indestructible.’
The Lettermacaward native has impressed at the south coast side since joining 18 months ago from Bradford City.
Argyle are currently top of League Two and McHugh, who lines out either in defence or more recently in midfield, has certainly played his part, with his GAA background with Na Rossa certainly playing its part in his resilient character.
“Anyone else remember the 1960s sci-fi television series Captain Scarlet (pictured below) and the Mysterons?,” wrote Chris Errington in the Plymouth Herald.
“The reason I ask is that Argyle’s Carl McHugh reminds me of the lead character in that show because they are both virtually indestructible.
“It should not perhaps come as a surprise, however.
“After all, McHugh comes from County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland and played Gaelic football to a good standard when he was younger.
“Gaelic football has always struck me as one of those sports where only the toughest will survive.
“McHugh is one of those footballers who wears his heart on his sleeve, so to speak, and you always know you are going to get 100 per cent from him.
“He has repeatedly shown that for Argyle, not only last season but this one as well.
“McHugh has often had to receive treatment from physio Paul Atkinson during games but, like Captain Scarlet, he always gets to his feet again.”
